There are no limits to your creativity

The baby lock Ovation is a combined overlock and coverstitch machine. She comes, of course, with the unique jet-air threading system and automatic thread delivery system. Dreams are there to come true! The Ovation is the dream of all sewing dreams and has now become a reality!! The baby lock Ovation sets new standards for combined overlock and coverlock machines. There are no limits to your creativity. It makes even the impossible possible.

You can use up to eight threads simultaneously to produce wonderful, incredible and outstanding decorative effects. This machine lets you combine overlock, coverlock or chain stitches however you like. In no time at all and without any difficulty! The Ovation easily takes you to wherever your sewing wants to be. Thanks to eight different thread guides. And it goes without saying that you can define the threading order yourself! No need to laboriously follow any threading points. Forget about loose threads and all the associated tangle and frustration. The Ovation naturally features baby lock's fully automated jet-air system to thread the loopers too. Just place the thread in the desired looper port, push the button and hey presto, the looper is threaded completely and automatically. If you like, you can also thread all three loopers at once.
Thanks to the automatic thread delivery (ATD) system and the stitch selector, you no longer have to worry about thread tension adjustment. All your stitches will now look perfect, no matter which sewing thread quality you use, from an ultrafine through to a strong thread. The presser foot pressure can also be adjusted separately and adapted to your needs. Only a baby lock offers the exclusive wave stitch that is an absolute eye catcher. Say goodbye to frustrating unwanted puckering or wavy seams with knitwear or very fine fabrics. The adjustable differential feed (0.6 – 2.0:1) gives all stitches a perfect look. What's more, the Ovation even copes with large sewing projects without any problems. The wide throat provides plenty of space to move large amounts of material during sewing. The baby lock Ovation's six LED lamps light up your workspace perfectly so that you can still see your sewing project when it gets late if you simply can't stop.


  • A presser foot lever fitted at the front is another new feature offered by the baby lock Ovation. You can raise the presser foot of your baby lock Ovation simply from the front, no need to fumble around at the rear of your machine and can keep your eyes on your sewing project.

  • The new presser foot pressure dial of the babylock Ovation allows you to handle all kinds of material or fabric individually. Regardless of whether your fabrics are fine, firm or heavy – the presser foot pressure is easily adjusted to the respective requirements. Thanks to the easy-read scale, you can precisely find the basic setting and adjust the controller for lighter and heavier materials.

  • This is what makes the baby lock Ovation perfect: more freedom for your creativity. The wider throat lets you handle larger and more voluminous sewing projects without difficulty. It is no longer your machine but you who decides the size of your sewing projects!

  • The baby lock Ovation features a unique, compact tubular looper system that guarantees fuss-free, quick threading. Extra-strong loopers in a quality similar to that used in industry make your baby lock Ovation fit for more difficult tasks.

  • The Ovation's auxiliary looper / converter can be easily activated for a two-thread stitch. Since it is firmly connected to the upper looper, it can't get lost or misplaced.

  • The ingenious jet-air threading system makes threading your Ovation child's play. From now on, you are the one who defines the threading order. You no longer need to follow any coloured threading points or start again from the beginning because of a threading error. Forget about loose threads that may cause tangles and confusion. Simply choose the desired looper thread, insert it into the threading port, push the button and the yarn will be threaded up to the tip of the Ovation's looper as if by magic. In fact, all loopers will. The jet-air system of your baby lock Ovation is simply ingenious!

  • Another dream comes true. From now on, it's child's play to thread in textured yarns or other thicker special-effect yarns. Apart from combining all types of stitches, you can now also choose different kinds of yarns and use them together for sewing on the baby lock Ovation.

  • Thanks to the automatic thread delivery system of your baby lock Ovation. Simply choose a stitch, set the thread delivery system correspondingly and start sewing.
    No more tiresome tension adjustment every time you use another fabric, stitch or thread thickness.
    There are three sensors - stitch width sensor - stitch length sensor - fabric thickness sensor - that help you produce perfectly balanced stitches on your Ovation – with no ifs and buts! Don't leave the thread tension to chance. You can trust your baby lock Ovation blindly. See for yourself!

  • Your baby lock Ovation lets you adjust the stitch width quickly and easily. You can deactivate the cutter quickly and easily with a switch if you want to sew closed or tube-like pieces of clothing. The same switch reactivates the cutter whenever you need it. The cutter does not is not fully retracted and you can use it as a guide.

  • Apart from simple overlock and cover stitches, the baby lock Ovation also offers the fascinating baby lock wave stitch. Simply set the selector lever to wave, thread the machine and let your Ovation perform magic: it will produce a wave stitch instead of the conventional overlock stitch on your sewing project. You can also combine the wave stitch with cover stitches if you like. You will be amazed by your sewing projects' new, fascinating look.

  • Stretch fabrics often cause problems such as puckering or distorted seams that leave you in despair. Thanks to its differential feed, the Ovation guarantees an optimum feed of stretch fabrics and thus prevents puckering or protruding seams. You can also use the Ovation's differential feed to produce fanciful gathering or stretching effects.

  • No more tiresome searching for the correct Ovation accessory. The handy accessory compartment under the thread spool holder contains all important tools. The accessories it can hold include:

    • Tweezer
    • Hand needle threader
    • Spare needle screws
    • Spare cutters
    • Screw driver for needle screws
    • Soft brush with guide to insert the needles
  • One and the same dial lets you modify the stitch length and change over the Ovation to the rolled hem option. Simply read the setting value on the dial's scale.

  • Since both the Ovation's cutter and the chaining finger move together, it really is the stitch width that changes and not just the cutting width, as with other conventional machines. This prevents overcutting and undercutting.
